Well acappella rhymes'll
Make me richer than a slipper made Cinderella fella
The folktale Cinderella tells of a young woman living in unfortunate circumstances that are suddenly changed to a remarkable fortune. The word “cinderella” has, by analogy, come to mean one whose attributes are unrecognized, or one who unexpectedly achieves recognition or success after a period of obscurity and neglect.
Nas says that acapella rhymes (lines without musical accompaniment) do what the slipper did to Cinderella: attain wealth and status.
